So we had a baby. And since we have a 2 year old it has been my job to take care of him and also take care of all chores around the house.
Caring for Deacon.
Did I say Laundry?
Sound redundant? It IS! Wow. And not easy. Maybe for some, but not for this human male. I tell you - and this goes out to all you stay-at-home moms, all you 'house-wives' and 'home-makers' and 'domestic engineers' (I'm sure I'm leaving out some of the nomenclature...but to all you ladies whose full time job is being Mom - you are amazing.
I don't know how you do it. It's non stop. I mean, I'm only doing this for a couple of weeks and it's wearing me out. I get up before 7 and go to bed after 11 and ain't nobody makin' Slurpies. The sheer volume of laundry is devastating. And to those moms who work both another job - you have too much to do. My mind can't even fathom. I don't know how else to put it. Maybe when the kids are a little older they are more autonomous - I don't know. But you ladies amaze me.
So, to every mom out there. You have the toughest and probably most important job in the universe. And I have one amazing wife whose incredible talents at being Mom have never amazed me more. She's a tireless servant of her family. Any of you folks out there who have an idea how I can show appreciation for her - please speak up! And this goes for you fellas too.
Whew. Deacon has been watching Sesame Street this whole time. He's learning about the violin, the letter A and the number 6. And now he's up and out of the room.........later.
